For the first time, OnePlus has shared the design of its OnePlus 7T phone before the official launch. The company speaks about the fourth generation of its smartphone design. The focus is on the camera this time.
OnePlus 7T Design
Following the footsteps of Google, OnePlus for the first time places its smartphone design online on the OnePlus forums before the official launch. We see the OnePlus 7T in a color that would be called Haze Blue. OnePlus also calls its design for the OnePlus 7T the fourth generation of its smartphone design.
Focus On The Camera
Many elements have clearly been adopted from the older OnePlus 6 design from 2018, but the focus is now on the camera. We see a larger, round module with multiple lenses that cries out for more attention than the simple vertical set-up we saw before.
We think the older vertical setup was cooler. It would have made sense if the camera sensors on the rounded module were not placed in a row. The lenses look like they have been forcefully cramped into the rounded module.
In their own words, OnePlus makes that choice, because the camera function of our telephone has become much more a central aspect, which should also be given a more prominent place. The round design of the module is also a reference to the shape of a camera lens. We also know the specifications of the camera setup.
This time the company is also fully committed to a matte finish, as we saw earlier with the OnePlus 7 Pro. It seems that a shiny finish disappears from the color palette of the Chinese brand. OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro are scheduled to launch on October 10, but there is also another event in India that will take place on October 26. We might be able to see the OnePlus there for the first time.
